Top tips in choosing your ideal invitation design


Know your theme

The very first thing to do is decide on the theme and colour scheme of your invitation. The theme of your invitations should be in line with your party theme. Vintage, rustic and lace are big stationery trends at the moment. Destination weddings are also on the rise, so quirky passport and boarding pass styles might be in your shortlist. For colour palette inspiration, more couple choose blues, greens, purples, and oranges, both in pastel and bold hues.

Determine your budget

It’s important to determine how much you can spend before you start to shop. Prices of wedding invitations vary significantly from the very simple ones to the extravagant designs.

Highly decorative and ornamental designs have always been extremely popular and will continue to be for a long time to come. Extravagant and slightly over-the-top use of embellishments including lace motifs, grosgrain and satin bows, tassels and diamonte buckles on invitations have brought back the refined elegance of the old days.

Make a selection

Once you’ve decided the first two items, you are now ready to search. Google is a good start. A lot of invitation companies are now online and you’re able to look into their available designs and previous projects.

It’s also important to know if you’re making your own design or order from stock items. It will be an easier process to order a stock item, and most probably cheaper too. If you wish to have a unique design, that could be an option as well. It will just take more diligence to come up with a design. This might not be the best option if time is a constraint.
